I got her starting on her own again, only thing is she's running a bit rough.  I need to get the conversion for the points taken care of and get her timed.  Then I need to get exhaust work done so I can get it inspected too   Hence why I started looking into upgrades...

Tech- - Engine / 360 Heads On A 318?

Well the way I saw it was, since I need to redo the exhaust no matter what considering it failed inspection like a year ago for an exhaust leak.  I was gonna see if I couldn't find a set of headers that will fit without going crazy, since I need to do dual anyways.  Granted I can't afford to do all of this now, but was just bored last night so I was browsing and looking at different options I had.

From what I've been reading, nothing has to be notched.  The 318 block supposedly has tons of room even with the 360 heads.

I know, I know, I don't even have the car running yet and I'm asking questions on what I can upgrade already   But it seems as though this is a good swap and I found a pair of 360 heads for $80 + shipping I figured I'd ask about it before I jumped in head first

I finally got around to taking a pic of what I was trying to explain. 





I need these for the passenger rear door.

I was doing a little browsing online and I haven't found many websites with weatherstripping (specifically a trunk seal) and was wondering if I'm just not looking in the right place or what.  If anybody could shed some light on this subject please let me know.

General Tech / something witty about starting the damn car

That'd be good and all, except for the fact that he sold the Junk...  And what's this MAD conversion?

Okay, enough about the Duster....Let's get back to the topic 
Today I pulled the carb off in attempt to get 'er starting on her own.  I had a spare 2 bbl laying around, so I was just going to switch over a few pieces and throw it on... All was fine and dandy until I got to the last piece and couldn't get it to work   P stopped by after work and suggested we just swap out the bad gasket in the original carb and toss it back on, then take it from there. 
    
After switching everything back to the original carb and putting it back on the car, we gave 'er a go.  And as you can probably guess...No go   For some reason the carb wasn't getting any gas, so we checked the lines from the fuel filter to the carb and got sprayed by gas   Then it hit me...While I was putting the carb back together, I put the little nipple inside the fuel line fitting backwards   So we flipped it around, mounted the carb back on and she fired right up 

So now she starts up on her own, tho she does idle a bit high and rough.  Tomorrow I'm gonna try to change the plugs and wires and see if that helps at all.

Oh and Lea, I have the 22" radiator

Ya it's pretty shot and as Steve said, I'll let it go for real cheap...Otherwise I'll have to take a trip to it and grab a few parts from it and scrap the rest.

When we took the door off, we lubed the daylights out of it and had it free turning better than the rear driver's side door.  Two of the teeth were rusted pretty bad and about half the size of the others....  I don't want to take the door off again unless I'm replacing the star gear.

Last night John and I decided it was time to try to open my seized rear passenger door....oh boy   After removing the door hinges and a little muscle later, she came off.  Boy was the mechanism dirty!  So we cleaned it and bolted it back on...then tried it out.  Things went good for the first two shuts but on the third one she seized back up   Apparently the star gear has a bad tooth...how would I go about getting a new one?  68 Fury III Sedan

Well today I decided to tackle the truck rust...
After pulling out the truck mat, I started to goto work with some good 'ole fashioned manual labor




Halfway done with the wire brushing...




AHHHH much better

After the brushing was through, I sprayed it down with Rust Treatment...





It's still in the process of drying, so I'll take more pics tomorrow after work when it's all dry

While browsing the Justsuspension website, I came across an entire front end kit for C bodies... http://www.justsuspension.com/product/14  would this be everything I need Steve or is it missing something?
